Watch the beauty of old pine trees and groves take you to a wonderful landscape of recreational activities such as bird-watching, backpacking, vehicle trails and wilderness hiking trails, boating, camping, cycling, fishing, horseback riding, picnicking, mountain biking and swimming, all this spread across the forest. Panoramic views and spell-bounding nature is a sure treat for the family at the Kisatchie National Forest.
The Sabine National Forest located in East Texas was established in 1936. Inhabited by tribes in the 16th Century, the forest has an interesting historical background. The early Spanish immigrants called them Tejas, now known as Caddo. Over centuries, European immigrants tried to convert these tribes but were evidently unsuccessful. By the 19th Century, the tribes were relocated and the land was under serious depletion process. After crucial attempts were made by the Texas Legislature to protect and conserve the land, Texas and USDA Forest together worked towards making this forest not just about rich history but also about recreation, with activities like fishing, camping, water sports, hunting, boating and picnicking on offer.
